Well - you cant have it all!
It would appear that the Christmas break had taken its toll.
3 minutes into the game and Taunton had scored 3 tries - they made their mark right from the kick off.
Nailsea were a little slow on the up-take and took too long to get the measure of the opposition.
Generally we lost ball at the break down, didn't cover the overlaps in the backs, and were too slow pushing up which allowed Taunton the initiative to play their game - even after their unforced errors.
Joe. C took advantage and hacked through for a well deserved opportunistic try.
But by half time we were 9 tries down to our one. However, fair play to the guys who kept going right to the end and Taunton only managed 4 tries in the second half.
A spirited effort against a well organised side - let's put this cup game behind us and look to recovering our winning ways.
More training from the full coaching team and full turn out from the lads on a Wednesday should see us back into full swing for the remainder of the season.
I am keeping the faith!
